Wondering about piano accompaniment scores

You are here

Hi, I'm hoping to put together a hymn supplement that contains lyrics, and piano score for accompaniment. Happy to just use public domain songs, though newer ones would be good if cost is reasonable. I see CCLI and OneLicense allow lyrics, chords, melody lines, but how/where do I gain permission for including the sheet music for our pianists?

1. For public domain (Can I reproduce public domain piano accompaniment from hymnals if I credit the source reference publication?)

2. For newer songs 



You should most likely check with the hymnal publisher to make sure that it is okay for you to copy a page from their hymnal. CCLI and OneLicense cover reprint licenses for worship services, but not for hymnals. You would need to get permission or license from the copyright holder for newer songs.
